Nambi, Kidanda(sayana) Nambi and Erundha (sitting) Nambi all are
at one place. Erundha Nambi is on the banks of the Tirupparkadal
rivulet about 1/2 km from this temple. The Malaimel Nambi is on
the hill about 10 kms form here. About a km from the village is
Tiruparivattai Parai(Rock) on which there is a Sannadhi for Bhagwat
Ramanuja. It is believed that Lord in the name of Vaduga Nambi
saved Bhagwat Ramanuja from enemies who planned to kill him. In
Ramanuja's Sannadhi, the Lord stands in the form of his Shishya
and hence known as Vaishnava Nambi. The Varaha Purana describes
the story of a great devotee, Nampaduvan, who helped a Braha Rakshash
in absolving his curse and attain Moksha. This is dramatized every
year on Kaisika (Karthikai) Dwadashi.
